After working in a library for five years and interning for two years, I decided that I wanted to branch out and try something new. So, I got an internship with the country radio station KBEQ-104.3.

Whoopie Pies: Dozens of Mix'em, Match'em, Eat'em Up Recipes
I married a man from upstate New York. Every time we go back East, we have to get a box of "devil dogs". I grew up calling them Susie Qs, although devil dogs are drier and sweeter. Now, they're called whoopie pies, and they have evolved into quite the treat; Classic Chocolate, Red Velvet, Lemon, Peanut Butter, Pistachio-Cardamom, Vegan Vanilla, and Jalapeno Cornbread. Just to name a few.

But, I’ve done some digging into Missouri’s past, and I think I know why people try to forget about Missouri.
Tomorrow, January 25th, is the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, widely recognized as Scotland's national poet. Burns was born in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1759.

I'm surrounded by books. There's both fiction and non-fiction, and even the picture books are beautiful. They are all so tempting, but I can’t read them all. So many look really good.

The song featured a cartoon train engineer, and the catchy tune and lyrics had children not only singing along, but learning too!
